found this can last thursday but didn't get around to cleaning or photographing it till today , was found at the site where i had found many cans a couple years ago but somehow missed this one till now . haven't really found many metal cans yet this year , not like a couple years ago when i found them like everyday

only ever found a couple old colony cans , this one is a pull top , for " Low Calorie Ginger Ale " sugar free 10 oz , made by Orchard products Limited Toronto .

some pics the first are before cleaning its rusted but cleaned up alot better

kind of assumed it must be rare as i hadn't seen one before and its low calorie not normal ginger ale . sure why not share the photo and can , can had been outdoors for a long time , assume its been there since late 60's or early 70's so to still have that much colour isn't that bad i guess

Thanks!....It's just great to see an example. Yes late 60's early 70's is spot on.
